Vacation

Wednesday, October 31, 2012


 
 
Over Columbus Day week, Adam and I took our first big vacation since our honeymoon almost three years ago and went to Tybee Island, Georgia.  On Friday evening, we started the long drive and after an overnight stay in Richmond, we finished the drive on Saturday.  We arrived at our condo on Saturday evening, unpacked the car and settled in for a week of relaxation.
 
 

 On Sunday, the weather was a perfect 85 degrees and sunny.  We spent the day walking on the beach, laying by the pool and sitting on the oceanfront balcony reading.  On Monday, we woke up to cooler temperatures and a rainy forecast, so we decided to drive into Savannah for the day.  After finding a place to park, we bought tickets for a trolley tour, and proceeded to learn about the city for the next 90 minutes.  After the tour, we wandered around, got some sandwiches and headed down to the riverfront to check out the touristy shops.  By that time, it was raining and we were umbrella-less, so we decided to go back to the condo. 
 
 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, we followed the same relaxing routines with walks on the beach and reading.  By Thursday, we were ready to get out and do something, so we bought tickets for an hour-long dolphin tour, which quickly became my favorite part of our trip!  We went out in a big open boat and the dolphins literally swam up right next to  us.  It was gorgeous day with a cool breeze and I managed to not get motion sick, so I’d call it a success.
 
 
 
 
 

We spent our last day of vacation soaking up the sun and the surf and being depressed that we had to go home.  After our day in Savannah, I really wanted to go to the Pink House Restaurant, but unfortunately, there were no open reservations.  When I got out of the shower on Friday afternoon, Adam surprised me and told me that he was able to get us reservations for dinner.  We got dressed up and drove into the city for an amazing dinner and then walked around a couple of the Savannah squares.  By Saturday morning, it was time to load up the car and get going and after 11 hours, we finally made it back to Delaware.

Overall, it was a great vacation and gave us a chance to relax and unwind. I'm already looking forward to the next one!
